  1. “Also a great choice as a master keyboard”

    This is a terrible choice as a master keyboard. The lack of real time controllers is dumbfounding. One of the 2 ribbon controllers is underneath the keyboard. In no way is this useful. The whole purpose of these keyboards is to be a controller, you know what that means it needs? Controls. I thought the Rolands were my most hated types of these keyboards until I tried one of these, and these types of keyboards are my main controller playing live.

  2. 2014 saw the rebirth of the RK-100S.
    Shouldn’t the title be “Korg brings back the re-birth of the RK-100S as the RK-100S 2” ?
    What are the exact differences with the 2014 model ?
